I had never purchased a vehicle on-line before, so I was apprehensive about how it all worked. I need not have worried, Autoport was obviously experienced as they answered all my questions reassuringly and allayed my fears by explaining the process clearly to me. They informed me of progress as it happened, the clearance, the loading, the transporting, even the whereabouts of the ship and its ports of call. Whatever paper work was required of them, they informed me, asked me in a timely fashion for my documents. I never felt under pressure and was impressed with their efficiency. I was even met at the airport and taken to their depot where again, all the paperwork was completed, and the car was mine! But it didn't stop there. I can't read Japanese. However, my queries about how something worked on the dashboard were patiently explained. The car is going well! I would not hesitate to recommend this company, and method of purchasing, to anyone. And I am really enjoying the car.
Thanks to the Autoport team, a seamless process from start to finish. I was kept in the loop throughtout process from inspection at the Japan side till ready for collection in Auckland. Special thanks to Daniel providing precise details and kind enough to deliver my car as I was unable to pick up due to an unforseen circumstance. Highly recommend buying from them if you find the right car.
Stop reading - call them up and have a chat. Communication was faultless and we were in good hands throughout. The car's been stripped down, inspected for hidden damage, and arrived on our driveway without a scratch. First of its model registered in NZ - no dramas. Old man almost cracked a smile. Now if only he'd drive it instead of looking at it all day.
I've now imported two cars via Autoport, both PHEVs, and I am happy to report that on both occasions I found the process to be seamless. Each time their team took care of everything from pre-purchase inspection in Japan to compliance and vinning in NZ, providing email updates along the way - the only hard part was waiting for my vehicles to arrive! The only paperwork on my end was applying to NZTA for the Clean Car Rebate. So if you're seeking a specific model or trim level not available here, Autoport is the place I found mine, and I'll recommend them to anyone!
I recently bought an Audi TT Quattro from Autoport in Auckland. The entire exercise was very easy as I live a considerable distance away! David and Daniel were very helpful and informative during the entire process! I have no hesitation in recommending Autoport to
others, as the entire process was carefully and professionally organised and I am extremely happy with my car!
My son was looking for a Nissan Fairlady 370Z and he could not find it exactly what he wanted. As I was browsing around I came across Autoport and saw exactly what my son wanted, so I ordered it from them. The whole process was stress free, awesome service and a very friendly team, esp. Daniel. He went extra miles to make sure the car was going to be delivered as promised. I would highly recommend Autoport to families and friends and I would definitely consider them If I am ready to get me a new ride :) Keep up the good service guys.
Having been a Jaguar enthusiast for more than 65 years I was trying to find a low mileage classic Jaguar to enjoy while I could still drive.
I found such a car in Japan. I had no idea how to go about having it thoroughly inspected to ensure it was genuinely as reported. Even less how to securely purchase the vehicle. Have it removed from the Japanese register. Complete export documentation and shipping. Arrange for import to NZ or the procedure to have it registered, WOF etc ready to legally drive here.
Here the wonderful team at Autoport.nz took over. They set out an easily understood breakdown of the procedure and costs from initial inspection, purchase, shipping and costs in NZ ready for me to drive away.
I paid a 10% deposit and left everything to them.
It was a completely seamless operation from the time that I asked them to buy the car until they told me it was ready for me to drive away.
It could not have been a better experience. The car was 'as new' from the showroom. The final account exactly as expected.
Within an hour of taking delivery of the beautiful Jaguar, with no obligation to do so, they also helped me make a no risk sale of my previous vehicle at a very satisfactory price.
I thoroughly recommend the team at Autoport.nz to anyone considering importing a vehicle from overseas.
They updated me regularly on progress, sent photos pre purchase and prior to shipping, and again on arrival.
I wouldn't think of going further than the Autoport team if I wanted another car. Efficient, honest, reliable and straight-out nice people.
It was a Rolls Royce service from Autoport when I recently received my selected car, a Toyota Yaris Cross. From the initial phone conversation with one of the directors until the delivery it was a seamless, professional transaction. I highly recommend Autoport to prospective clients. If you are wanting open and honest communication, expert advice and knowledge about the auto trade and value for money then take the plunge and buy from Autoport where a team of professionals can realise your dream for your next auto purchase. Every detail is covered and every question is answered. 5 Stars Autoport *****
I discovered Autoport late last year with a goal of getting a car I've always wanted. The selection of cars was amazing, and with the option of being able to get help finding and sourcing a car in japan really stood out to me. The process was very easy once we got it underway, with the team at Autoport happy to help in any way they could. From the financing, to the transport of the car from Japan to NZ, to the compliance and getting ready to take on NZ roads, everything was so streamlined. Once they took delivery of the car the team went above and beyond to get the car into perfect shape ready to hand over the keys. I highly recommend Autoport for anybody looking for their next car, with such an easy and straight forward process you don't want to miss out on your next pride and joy!
The experience was seamless and well-organised by the team at Autoport. From my first viewing on the internet through to pre-purchase inspections, delivery to the port in Japan, transportation and arrival in NZ to final certification and ultimate delivery to my home. Couldn't have been more efficient.
I was looking for a classy European car and settled on a Porsche Panamera. The Hybrid model swung the deal to ease my environmental guilt. The purchase process through Autoport was very easy once the decision was made. Like a good cheese it took a while to arrive but considering the logistics in these uncertain (frightening) times it was well worth it. The car was well presented and met all expectations. The end price delivered to Nelson was less than I had expected, and I wouldn't hesitate to be guided by the Autoport team in the future. Paul.
Awesome service, great communication throughout the process of importing the car from Japan. I would definitely recommend if you wanted to go this way in purchasing a vehicle. Great website too. Thanks. Ashley.
I would like to thank the Autoport team David, Daniel & Natalie for such a smooth process in getting my BMW to NZ. David ordered the vehicle and explained everything. Being a woman on my own the 1 Year mechanical breakdown insurance was an added bonus. When Natalie gave me the name of the ship to track its where abouts and kept me updated with everything it became so exciting. Then I met Daniel to collect it, he had it all ready and it was shining so much it looked as though it had come straight out of the factory. They were all so professional. I would certainly recommend Autoport to anyone. Thanks, guys, for my beautiful car.
Have found the entire experience to be excellent, great communication and a genuine desire to do the very best for the client, have referred them on to several people and will continue to do so. Will be using this service again 100%.
Autoport gave me the car I selected from the Japanese market, hassle free and trustworthy service. Buying the latest variants and specs from this market is exciting for me, and Autoport provide this opportunity where everything is upfront no surprises. Thank you.
In May 2021 I decided to purchase my next car through the Internet, while living in Australia.
There was a website I liked a lot by the name of "autoport.nz". After searching through it for a while I found a beautiful Mercedes E250, equipped with all the bells and whistles one would expect from such a car. It had a very low (guaranteed) mileage. The price was more than reasonable. So, my wife and decided to go for it. I contacted Autoport.nz. A very helpful and nice person named Daniel contacted me and told me how to go about purchasing a car from them.
I paid the initial ten percent deposit of the car’s price. Then the car was checked thoroughly, first in Japan, after shipping it to NZ it was once again checked here. When my wife and I arrived in NZ in July 2021 the car was very nicely groomed and waiting for me, as agreed with Daniel and Natalie (another nice and supportive person of Autoport.nz).
So, all up, I like the car, I like the way I was treated as a customer and there’s nothing I could complain about. In fact, our younger daughter is currently in the process of getting three cars from Autoport.NZ, one for her husband, one for her daughter, and one for herself.
Finally, I’d like to mention that I am not linked in any way to Autoport.nz or receive any payment for my testimonial.
Thanks to Autoport for the wonderful service, I ordered my car and you delivered without any difficulties. The time frame was just phenomenal. The services were just excellent. I will continue to use Autoport, and am expecting to order my next car in a few years to come.
I bought the red Subaru Outback a week ago. The car is great, goes really well, like a new car, it has full service history from Japan, so was very well looked after. Thanks for the good service as well.
The thought of importing a car was something my wife and I have thought about in the past, but it fell into the too hard basket and we had no idea where to start, that was until a friend introduced me to Autoport. Autoport had 1000’s of cars to choose from and we found a late model car with much lower km’s and price than we could find from any dealer here in NZ and they took care of absolutely everything. We were a little apprehensive during the 6 week wait for the car to arrive but we needn’t have been as Autoport kept us up to date every step of the way and when the car arrived it exceeded our expectations and had been valeted to a near new look. Autoport are great to deal with and I would happily use them for our next car.
I hadn’t planned to buy my car online ... until I saw the deal. Autoport had the best price, lowest mileage, came with all the On Road Costs, and had a mechanical warranty... I figured Autoport had the best deal by far. I would absolutely recommend using Autoport – I already have. Matthew M
Although I was skeptical at first to deal with Autoport, I was pleasantly surprised when they actually found a car that not only matched my requirements, but also exceeded the same - I got more than what I had asked for and at the price I wanted to pay. It is easy to deal with Autoport; their communication is frequent and without lengthy delays in between, especially when dealing with Ryan. Once again; a big Thank You to Autoport for the great deal and awesome experience!
We weren’t sure about buying a near new car from the UK as we didn’t like the idea of sending a lot of cash overseas and we didn’t know about claiming VAT. Autoport managed all that. The car had just 500 miles on the clock, was highly spec’d and the savings were very, very significant! Totally comfortable and totally trustworthy service and I like we got the right car direct from the source but dealt with a local NZ company. Very happy thanks for the great deal.
We needed a cheap replacement car for the bach. We couldn’t be bothered with auctions or visiting dealers and found Autoport quick and easy with plenty of choice. Just tell them what you want online or over the phone. We saved time with absolutely no hassles (David managed all the negotiations, shipping etc.) and we still saved money. I’m very happy to recommend Autoport.
I love my little Vitz, it even has paddles! It’s never missed a beat, is good on fuel and looks great. I’m retired so wasn’t 100% sure about using an internet site to buy a car, but talking to David and getting to know all the checks they do and them doing to price haggle made it easy for me. I couldn’t believe how good the car was when it turned up. When I buy another car I’ll use Autoport.
That was so easy, absolutely zero stress. I got exactly what I wanted and saved a lot of money and time. Ryan kept me informed all the way of where the car was at, when it arrived in NZ and when it would be ready to collect. I was happy the price even included breakdown insurance, rego and petrol so when I picked it up there was nothing more to pay, just ready to go. Thanks I’ll buy from you again.
We’re a retired couple and needed a reliable car at the right price. Dealing with a NZ company who handles everything took the hassle away. We didn’t have to worry about haggling with anyone over the price or getting pushed into buying extras and the price we ended up paying was much better than local prices. Overall this was very easy and not like normally buying a used car. We were totally comfortable with this purchase and made a great saving. We’ll never buy anywhere else from now on.
